SCAM. AVOID THIS PRODUCT AND COMPANY
What prompted me to buy this was the "8-in-1" adjustability advertised on the box. I am a stomach sleeper so I was particuarly interested in the "low profile" mode. I got it home and unwrapped it, and discovered a conspicuous lack of instructions on how to adjust the pillow into different forms. Some pillows allow you to remove shreds of the stuffing to make it lower profile, but the Bambillo does not. I wrote to the company and asked how to adjust it. Their reply, incredibly, was "just lie on it and it will adjust itself to you". This makes it...no different to any other foam pillow on the market, and my continued requests for assistance went un-answered. I wrote to Harris Scarfe, the store where I purchased the pillow, and explained the borderline false advertising on the Bambillo packaging. I mentioned that I understood the hygiene rules for pillow returns but this was an exceptional case due to the company's blatant lying about their product. They agreed and allowed me to return the pillow. I now have the Eva pillow which is exactly what I was looking for. Just FYI, in its normal state the Bambillo is an extremely high pillow that would suit only the largest-framed sleepers. My husband has extremely broad shoulders and even he found it unusable. TL:DR--Not adjustable as it claims, company does not back up product, do not buy.

Returning and refunding
This company do not help with or enable returns of products. Buyers beware. I will not be purchasing again and will be informing others. Very poor service. And I cannot recommend.

We purchased Bambillo pillows approx 2 years ago. Very comfortable and supportive. Best pillows we have had. Have recommended them to family and friends. Jpust a shame standard size pillow cases dont fit.
Purchased in July 2018 for $25.00.
If this was on a pillow menu it would be listed as a pancake.
To start with this pillow was comfortable, it was nice and supportive. Now I wake up with terrible neck pain. To say it’s 8 different pillows in one is a scam, after a couple of months my pillow represents a pancake more than a pillow. I bought it from Harris scarfs on sale I can’t even return the dam thing because of their return policy.

The pillow is fine for the first few months then it starts to go flat. Sometimes I'd get a headache. The 8 positions they claim is total rubbish at the end of the day it's just another pillow.

Bam Bull ow !
Got as Christmas gift, followed instructions despite finding them ridiculous. One night was enough but I thought I'd "sleep on it " and gave it a second chance which lasted a true 10 to 15 minutes. Very uncomfortable and made me feel overheated and stiff necked. Absolutely the classic TV advertised junk. Don't be fooled by the B.S. advertising, it's an overpriced over marketed rip off. However I do think it would be an excellent pillow for undertakers to use in coffins. Bam Bam Barney Rubble and Fred Flintstone have better pillows. Think I'll make a Chia Pet out of it and grow bamboo shoots. Don't be Bamboozled...buy an ordinary pillow. Goodnight Irene.
I like it.
I bought it to try for my neck because I had stiff neck. This is the only pillow I am using since. My pain is gone. I got one for my partner and bought 2 for my parents. Loved it.
Purchased in January 2016 at TV Shop.
Good for a few months
Pillow has gone hard and uncomfortable and now giving neck pains. Pillows were a gift .
The pillow is not supportive and is uncomfortable as in making my head hot and uncomfortable
I don’t recommend.

Bambillow no bamboo in this pillow
TV Shop sells a pillow called Bambillow. Don't be fooled like I was. There is no Bamboo in this pillow. They say I misinterpreted the name. They claim to be the original. 8 pillows in 1. Adjustable, cool, comfortable. Anyone who lives in a warm climate knows that polyester is not cool. To send them back is just throwing good money after bad.

Neck pain caused by Bambillo Pillows
I got the pillows as an extra addition to the Mattress
Paid $100 for 4 pillows
They look nice
But they are hard and awful and giving me a teribble nights sleep! Waking up several times a night trying to adjust it
Then just end up throwing the pillows off and sleeping with nothing
My poor neck has never been so sore all thanks to the Bambillo Pillows
My partner also hates them
DO NOT BUY THE PILLOWS THEY ARE AWFUL!!!!
Purchased in January 2019 for $100.00.
Don't buy garbage
Never woke with a sore neck until I used a bambillo pillow, worst purchase I have made by a long shot, pulled seam apart to check inside because it was way to hard just chunks of foam only pillow case is bamboo supposedly, total waste of money. Buy from a reputable store not from these rip off merchants
Purchased in March 2018.
Thisis all I use now .
I suffer from some neck and spinal problems and thought I'd give this pillow a try . At first I thought it was terrible , then after persisting a few times further I found I was sleeping longer and waking up more refreshed than I have in some time . It's the only one I use now.
Like many other reviewers, I woke up with stiff neck and shoulders
Wish I had read the reviews!
Mine was a random purchase, I didn't have neck or back issues, I do now!
Seriously! This pillow is a subtle torture device. Who would have thought a comfy looking pillow and smug looking people hugging their head into the Bambillo on the infomercials, could be so devious!
It's a trap people! Probably made in China, to give every user world wide a stiff neck, so they can't look over their shoulders and see China taking over the world one shoddy product at a time ..mwah..ha ha
Very disappointed in the bambillow. It only holds its shape for half hour max then returns to flat pillow. Has done nothing but make my neck worse so disappointed I wasted money on this. Do not buy if you have neck issues
